The Mayor stood behind the curtain, waiting for it to lift up. She had dato many speeches before, but a speech about murders?
She had spoken to her citizens about disasters in the past. But nothing to this extent. CRASH!!!
"Derpy! What did I tell te about coming behind stage? You`re supposed to lift the curtain not handle the stage lights." snapped the Mayor. "I`m sorry, I dun`t know wat da problem es?!" replied the Pegasus. Then she lifted the curtaon as she was instructed.
The crowd cheered and applauded, as the Mayor made her way to the podium. She took a deep breath, and grabbed her note-cards that had her speech on it. She smiled and thanked the crowd, she had been in office for years, and never missed one speech. She wasn`t planning on missing today. Citizens of Ponyville! As te all know there have been three recente murders. The great and powerful Trixie, Super model foto Finish, and fashion critic Hoity Toity. We have mourned these losses for weeks on end. But, it is time we took a stand, together we will find these terrorists. And I can assure you, as Mayor of Ponyville. We will Prevail against any further assasinations! Boost our Military, train più soilders, provide morale, anything to cease these threats against our peaceful land we call home. So stand with me! Rise up, and fight back these monsters! If we work together, we can accomplish anything!!!
The crowd roared once more, as the Mayor left behind the stage. "Want some Beverages?" asked a backstage crew member holding a tray. "Sure! I am exhausted." the Mayor replied. She took a drink of one of the delicious looking drinks.
She immeadietly regreted that decision, she felt the air leave her lungs. And her mouth began foaming, she tryed to speak. But all she could do was choke, she shed a tear as she took her last breath. The assasin picked her up, and took her out to the stage. LOOK AT THIS!!! SHE IS DEAD!!! POISONED da MY HOOVES!!! I DECLARE WAR!!! WAR ON THE INNOCENT CITIZENS OF EQUESTRIA!!!
And with that, the great war started.
